"God Bless the Child" was originally by Billie Holiday. It was also, as performed by Jerry Lawson, the original theme to the FOX sitcom Roc, starring Charles S. Dutton, which is still the version I most remember somehow ...

Roc's later theme song was by En Vogue.


Speaking of TV theme songs, the late great Joe Strummer of the Clash recorded this one, which was used as the theme to David Milch's underrated Deadwood followup, John From Cincinatti.

Well, y'know. I had a Belafonte phase going on when I was younger (after seeing Beetlejuice, I think) and that particular song stuck with me.

Harry Belafonte did a memorable episode of The Muppet Show.

He didn't do God Bless the Child, but Gladys Knight did.
